READ THE LABEL BEFORE USE. USING THIS PRODUCT IN A MANNER THAT IS INCONSISTENT WITH THE LABEL MAY BE AN OFFENCE. FOLLOW THE CODE OF PRACTICE FOR USING PLANT PROTECTION PRODUCTS.

Additional Safety Phrases
Do not contaminate water with the product or its container. (Do not clean application equipment near surface water/Avoid contamination via drains from farmyards and roads.)
To protect aquatic organisms respect an unsprayed buffer zone of five metres to surface water bodies.

DIRECTIONS FOR USE
IMPORTANT: This information is approved as part of the Product Label. All instructions within this section must be read carefully in order to obtain safe and successful use of this product.

RESTRICTIONS
DO NOT treat crops suffering from stress caused by drought, frost, disease or other adverse factors.
CONSULT PROCESSOR BEFORE USING ON CROPS FOR PROCESSING.

WEEDS CONTROLLED
Applied as post-emergence herbicide in maize, sweetcorn, bulb onion and shallot, BUTRYFLOW controls a wide range of annual broadleaved weeds, especially young seedlings. The treatment must be made when the weeds are between the cotyledon stage and the sixleaf stage.

CROP SPECIFIC INFORMATION
Forage maize, grain maize and sweet
corn
Dose: Maximum individual dose 1.0 l/ha.
Maximum total dose: 1.0 l/ha.
Timing:
Apply from the two leaf stage of the crop up to the eight leaf stage (GS 12–18). The period of treatment must be determined by the growth of the weeds rather than by the growth of maize. The duration of protection covers the whole period when maize is susceptible to weed competition. Water volume: Apply in 200 litres of water per hectare.

Linseed
Maximum individual dose: 1.0 l/ha.
Maximum total dose: 1.0 l/ha.
Timing:
Apply when the crop is 3–15 cm tall but before flower buds are visible.
Water volume: Apply in 200 litres of water per hectare.

Bulb onion, shallot (grown from seed)
APPLICATION SHOULD ONLY BE MADE TO BULB ONION AND SHALLOT CROPS THAT WILL BE MECHANICALLY HARVESTED.
DO NOT APPLY BUTRYFLOW TO BULB ONION OR SHALLOT GROWN FROM SETS.
Maximum individual dose: 0.75 l/ha.
Maximum total dose: 0.75 l/ha.
Timing
Apply between 1 May and 30 September. Apply from crop emergence until four true leaves (GS 14). It is important to note that crop tolerance is related to the development of leaf waxes and application when the development to leaf waxes has been impaired may cause crop damage. This could be when the crop is under stress or when applied before three true leaves are fully expanded when the development of waxes may not be complete.
Water volume: Apply in 200 litres of water per hectare.

MIXING AND SPRAYING
Partly fill the tank with water to a level of approximately a third of total, and then start agitation. Add the required quantity of BUTRYFLOW to the tank. Maintain agitation during treatment. Extreme care must be taken to avoid spray drift onto non-crop plants outside of the target area.
Tank cleaning
Wash spray equipment and container thoroughly with alkaline solution. Rinse twice through the system with pump to ensure that all pipes and nozzles are rinsed thoroughly.

COMPATIBILITY
Consult the manufacturer’s labels and leaflets for use recommendations.

WEED RESISTANCE
When herbicides with the same mode of action are used repeatedly over several years in the same field, selection of resistant biotypes can take place. These can propagate and may become dominating. A weed species is considered resistant to a herbicide if it survives a correctly-applied treatment at the recommended dose.
Development of resistance within a weed species can be avoided or delayed by alternating (or tank mixing) with suitable products having a different mode of action.
Key aspects of the BUTRYFLOW weed resistance management strategy are:
- BUTRYFLOW is a nitrile herbicide (HRAC Code C3) whose mode of action is via membrane disruption caused by activated oxygen radicles formed by photosynthesis. Do not use BUTRYFLOW, or any other C3 herbicide, as a sole means of broadleaved weed control in successive crops.
- Always use broadleaved weed herbicides with other modes of action throughout the crop rotation.
- Always monitor weed control effectiveness and investigate any occurrences of poor effectiveness. If unexplained contact your agronomist who may consider a resistance test appropriate.
